Tesla Ramps Up Cybertruck Production, Eyes Global Showcases Despite Regulatory Hurdles

Tesla has been scaling up production of the Cybertruck at its Gigafactory in Austin, Texas. Recent drone footage indicates that the company is producing 900 to 1,000 units each week.

The company has also been delivering early Cybertruck units since its launch event in November, with many reservation holders still waiting for their delivery dates. According to Cox Automotive's most recent data, Tesla delivered 2,803 Cybertruck units in Q1.

Tesla has also used the Cybertruck to promote its unique electric vehicle (EV), with the business launching displays throughout the United States and elsewhere.

Although the vehicle is not for sale outside of the United States and may never reach other countries due to tougher pedestrian safety requirements, Tesla has been touring it across China, Japan, and Germany, with some speculating that it will make its way to Thailand next.
